Maybe. This group of symptoms can describe many problems including allergies, dry eye and blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid). Your best bet is to see an eye doctor to determine which is the primary cause and treat it. If allergy is the primary cause, itching is usually the predominant symptom.
Could be. The cardinal sign of allergy is itchiness. If you have itchiness associated with those symptoms, then it is probably from allergy. You should have an allergist check you out. But if you don't have itchiness, it could be dry eyes, or other eye diseases. Consult an opthamologist.
I have a fever, really sore blood shot eyes, runny nose, sneezing all day and general discomfort do you think I might be getting measles?
Sound like a cold. Not measles, .
No. Rubella (german measles) - symptoms typical symptoms of rubella are a mild rash, swollen and tender glands (especially behind the ear, at the back of the neck, and under the skull), and a slight fever. Also, some adolescent girls and adult women get joint pain (arthritis), especially in the small joints of the hands.
Stuffy nose, mild cough, really sore throat, blood shot eyes that crust horribly over night. What could these symptoms mean?
Sounds like a cold. All these symptoms are pretty typical, of your run of the mill viral cold. If the symptoms last more than 7-10 days or are accompanied by high fever greater than 101, i'd talk to your doctor.
Yes. Lack of sleep can cause blood shot eyes.
Difficult. Even for medical doctors, this is difficult there is a simple new test that can readily identify pink eye.
No. Blood shot eyes when sleep deprived are usually a sign of dryness and irritation. Try some artificial tears and trying to adhere to a regular sleep / wake cycle.
No. Red eyes from lack of sleep is due to prolonged eye exposure to air and irritants causing surface inflammation with resultant redness.
Depends... Is this a chronic condition or something new? Is vision affected? Are the eyes painful? Any discharge? These other factors help us to determine how urgent an issue is.
Not too much. Blood shot eyes are usually caused by fatigue, dry eyes or allergies. Some would also classify subconjunctival hemorrhage as bloodshot. As long as the cause is known, there is usually no worry. If there is sudden onset without a cause, see an eye doctor.
Depends. Fatigue lowers the tear flow and causes some eye redness. As long as your vision is not affected or the eyes do not hurt or have pus in them, then you can wait a few days for it to clear. And get some relief from topical lubricant eyedrops. If persistent then see your ophthalmologist. You can use "get the red out drops" for photos or social reasons, but they are not a good idea all the time.
Depends on the cause. Blood shot eye, also called red eye is a non-specific term to describe an eye that appears red due to illness or injury, ranging from dry eyes, or allergies to much more serious things such as bacterial infections. If not too painful, nor traumatic and infrequent, I would recommend otc artificial tear lubricants 3-4x/day. If symptoms still persist or worsen, then see an ophthalmologist (eye md).
It depends. Bloodshot eyes caused by a subconjunctival hemorrhage can take up to 2 weeks or longer to go away. If the eye is pink (inflammation, allergy, infection), it may improve quickly with the appropriate treatment. A trip to the eye doctor can help sort out what is going on and how best to treat it.
Depends upon cause. It, of course, depends upon the cause of the hyperemia (blood shot eyes). If from lack of sleep or allergies, simple treatments like visine or murine allergy can do the trick very quickly. You may need stronger or prescription meds, so see an eye care specialist for continuing problems.
Not common. Most people go through life without getting eye problems blood shot eyes which usually are infectious or due to bleeding can happen to anyone, but need exposure or trauma to produce these. Other causes can also happen but mostly these happen infrequently. Don't worry but seek help if it happens to you.
